I beg to move amendment No. 78, in

clause 6, page 3, line 23, leave out paragraph (b).

The amendment would delete the phrase

''whether or not he risks losing anything at the game.''

That refers to a person playing a game of chance for a prize. It is a probing amendment: we should like the Minister to explain why that subsection is in the Bill and in which circumstances it will apply. We can think of some examples but not many. The amendment is designed to elicit some response from the Minister.
